Thank You, Frontierland Merchandise

Dear Frontierland, For about three years, I called you my home away from home. You were the place I grew out of my shyness, my insecurities, and my fear of being on my own.

I had hoped to be posting a weekly update for you all, but once you finish this post, you will understand why I haven’t done so, but what I hope to be doing in the future. This DCP has been (almost) completely different than my first one. The first one was pretty relaxed and was focused only on having fun...
